I was thinking "Is there a use for ender pearls? How about we make one?". So I came up an idea for a mod.
=== Ideas ===
Ender pearls could have 3 new uses in the mod:
-Making tools that mine their respective blocks as fast as gold can with the durability of diamond, which can also (slowly) repair themselves.
-Making diamond grade armor that also repairs itself (once it reaches a certain boundary of damage).
-and be broken for a temporary effect of fast hp regeneration, fast running, and high damage (2 more points of damage?), but rapidly decreases the hunger meter (as in very quick 0 hunger) as an after effect.
Crafting ender tools follow this process:
1) First craft the gold type of tool/armor piece.
2) Take an amount of ender pearls equal to the number of gold bars used to craft the object.
3) Use the gold armor/tool in an "ender dynamo" (which will function like a furnace) with gold armor as the thing to be smelted and a number of ender pearls (equal to the amount of gold bars used to make the object) as the " fuel".
Suppose I want to craft ender boots. For that, I'll need an ender dynamo, 4 gold bars, and 4 ender pearls. I first craft gold boots, then I smelt them with the 4 ender pearls in the fuel slot. Give it some time, and boom, ender boots.
=== Licensing ===
Of course, this is just a compilation of ideas, waiting to become code. So I'll need a willing modder. I will also include the willing modder in the license and give them credit accordingly.
This will also need a license, which I have made beforehand.
